Hiking academy

From beginner to pro hiker, the programs in our hiking academy teach you how to walk the great outdoors safely and securely so that you can truly unlock your mountain.

At the heart of our operations

Paramedics On Board

Hiking is a high-risk activity like most other sports. All our excursions have at least one skilled paramedic on board to take care of you in case of injury.

10:1 Guide Ratio

Getting lost is not funny; therefore, we do not negotiate on your safety on the trails. We engage sufficient local guides and support staff to ensure a 10:1 participant to guide ratio.

COVID-19 Protocols

We understand that enjoying the outdoors during these trying times is a great privilege. Adherence to 50% vehicle occupancy, among other protocols, is non-negotiable.

OUTDOORER COMMUNITY

We have something going on every Saturday. Our events bring together people from different walks of life, uniting them under one common need: to connect with self, others, and nature.

hikers for hikers

Our team is made up of competent hikers, each bagging years of experience on diverse trails. Their proficiency and unmatched attention to every hiker’s needs are the pillars upon which the Outdoorer Community is built.

outdoorer stories

Point Lenana was the starting point; this is now a lifestyle.

I am from a seven-year lull of life — feeling lost and numb and not even knowing myself. I couldn’t even answer the question, “Who are you?” I decided to do something about it in December last year. I knew I loved walking long distances, hiking, and adventure, but where to start? On December 12,… Read more “Point Lenana was the starting point; this is now a lifestyle.”

My childhood experiences were holding me back from going out there

Hiking and being in the outdoors was never my thing. The first time I went hiking was back in campus, which was 100% inspired by peer pressure. While I discovered that I loved adventure, I knew I would only enjoy this while in my ‘safe space’ — something that curtailed my adventurous spirit. It was… Read more “My childhood experiences were holding me back from going out there”

I’ve had so many naysayers in my life always telling me NO because of the weight I carry.

I am still in awe at what one can achieve when one puts their mind to it. I’ve had so many naysayers in my life always telling me NO because of the weight I carry. When I came across the #beginnertomtkenya program, I had never hiked a day in my life and had… Read more “I’ve had so many naysayers in my life always telling me NO because of the weight I carry.”

My true accomplishment was reaching the summit of my potential

If you told me a few years ago that I would be this outdoorsy person jumping from one mountain to another like some adrenaline junkie, we would have both laughed out loud. When I first started this journey, I was going through a phase in which I felt the need to do something extraordinary for… Read more “My true accomplishment was reaching the summit of my potential”

We have always realized the importance of friendship as a married couple and this brought us closer and strengthened our friendship.

We may not have summited Lenana but we made deeper achievements and long-lasting memories both as a couple and individuals. The nights were cold and long — I was unable to sleep all 3 nights — but I remained resilient and marshaled all the energy I had, and pushed to the limit, with Eric beside… Read more “We have always realized the importance of friendship as a married couple and this brought us closer and strengthened our friendship.”

I returned to the big mountain with no expectations. But I won!

I returned to Mt. Kenya precisely one month since my last failed attempt. I was on a mission to deliver a clear message to my epilepsy: I was no longer afraid of it, and I was not going to let it win. These past four weeks have had me working on my pace, breathing, and… Read more “I returned to the big mountain with no expectations. But I won!”
